ITS A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS AT SWEET TEA N' SALTY AIR! COME ON IN.............
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Made this from tops from plastic containers .....
I so snuck on over to my neighbors and took this picture of his Poinsettia, he so has a green thumb and a kind heart, he shares some cuts and plants with us, bless his heart!
I crafted this tree from a scrap of wood and the star is made from some shims
This is the secrete lil cabinet filled with a collection of Santas
My favorite is the Fenton Santa on the right
This year we went with a white tree and the lodge theme, seems fitting seeing that we are a stones throw from the everglades, and Bears roam our yard.
I think my favorite part of the tree is hanging on all the childrens picture ornaments, my Son Tim a very long time ago
These Santa lights play music and the children love pushing the button to make them work
These tree bags will be filled up with sand and then a candle and they will eliminate the walkways.
This sweet little cabinet was given to us by my mom, every day a door is open and an ornament is taken out along with a prize of candy
I recently found a small cedar box that was filled with my great grama sue who would be well into her hundreds now! The box had a scent of her perfume that she wore, she had some button collection, all are vintage and very pretty. I set them in a galvanized tray around the Christmas lantern. Grama Sue is such a sweet memory, just as my Dad and mom and all my grandmothers who have now past
This lovely table runner is from Pottery Barn all embroidered
Love the Snowmen...given to me by my daughter in law
This little ice fisherman is so special to me when my middle son Nicholas was about 8 or so he went to the store and bought me this so I love to display it every Christmas!
It has been so nice having you by! I wish everyone a special joyous safe Holiday!!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
